Samsung ML-1430
Black & White laser printer, max. 600x600 dpi, works Perfectly
Recommended Driver: gdi (Home page, View PPD, directly download PPD)
Generic Instructions: CUPS, no spooler


One of Samsung's line of host-based lasers. They generally work well and cost little. Samsung sort of supports Linux use, with installable Linux/x86 cups drivers often in the box, a penguin often on the box, etc.

Note that there is a minor USB timing issue. Specifically, when you turn on the printer, it whirs (I guess booting and heating up) for some 15-45 seconds. For the first 15, the device is present and detectable on the USB bus, but will not completely initialize in the kernel because it won't accept an address. The USB hub code tries exactly twice - once with a fast timeout and once for slow devices with a slightly longer timeout. There is a patch in the archives if this is still a problem.

Consumables/Refills: Toner and drum in one unit
